The Amador-Noguez lab in the Department of Bacteriology at UW-Madison invites applications
for a postdoctoral position. Our research program integrates cutting-edge experimental
technologies including LC-MS based metabolomics and computational tools to gain a holistic
and quantitative understanding of bacterial metabolism. We have opportunities in several
areas, including metabolic regulation in emerging microbial biofuel producers (e.g. Z. mobilis, S.
cerevisiae), and metabolic remodeling during biofilm development in B. subtilis. The position is
for a highly motivated, new or recent Ph.D. graduate who strives to develop an independent
research career. This position will provide a unique opportunity to gain experience in a highly
interdisciplinary research environment, access to state-of-the-art resources, and close
collaboration with researchers at the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) and the
University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree (PhD) in biochemistry, microbiology, molecular
biology, chemistry, biological and chemical engineering, or related field. The ideal candidate is a
creative, productive and self-motivated individual with the ability to think critically, learn
quickly, function both independently and within a team, and possess strong written and verbal
communication skills. Expertise in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable but not
required: metabolomics, metabolic network analysis, microbial genetics, genetic engineering,
computational modeling, mass spectrometry, and microscopy.
Qualified individuals interested in this opportunity should submit their curriculum vitae, a cover
letter detailing their research experience and research interest, and contact information of
three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer.
